The Fishing Port of Cullen

One of the fishing villages we drove through on the way to Gardenstown is the picturesque port of Cullen.

It was in this fishing port that Cullen Skink originated.

The viaduct was built towards the end of the 19th Century to accommodate the railway. 

None of these fishing ports are strangers to tragedy. But on the day we drove through, it all seemed so peaceful. So sunny, pretty and peaceful.

The coastline is lovely.
When you're driving east, the sea is to the north, 
and wonderful farmland to the south. 
 Beautiful. But poignant that day.   

If you ever have the opportunity to drive in Scotland, I'd definitely recommend driving along this coastline. The first time we'd ever been was the day we first met our dear friends, Alex and Elsie. Providence is an astonishing thing. How little we knew that evening what depths our friendship would reach.


  1. Really beautiful photographs.

  2. What a lovely drive/place/coast! Providence IS a beautiful thing! Thanks for sharing the pics of your part of the world.

  3. Good Morning!

    I just love your photos...there is just something about the sea that draws us to it. We live in a little fishing village on the coast of Maine...in so many ways similar to the one you are sharing in your post. Small villages have a way of bringing people together...

    Have a blessed weekend,

  4. Laura, welcome! Maine...Maine! Must go tell hubby - if I speak of new decor, or of colours, or anything I'd do in the house, he always says, 'Is that very Maine?' ..... cos he knows it's what I love. What a beautiful part of the world in which to live. Scenery, sea AND the weather. Oh well, we can't have it all! x

  5. Such pretty territory! Nothing like we see here in Texas! Thanks for dropping by my blog today. Yes, I love Patrice's site, and her rooster interview was perfect! :)
